I am trying to do something simple, but for some weird reason It won't work. I have created a global security group  called http_access and tried adding the group domain users to it. It will not work. I tried several tests groups also tring to add test1 to test2 and that does not work. adding users to the groups does work. I tried the same thing on a different domain as a sanity check and it works fine. Any ideas?

Yes, any error on this. Do you have the same permissions as on other domain?

Your domain is most likely in Mixed Mode. Like group nesting is not available in mixed mode due to legacy NT4 domain controllers. See the following article for more details:

http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/How-Nest-Users-Groups-Permissions.html

If you want to confirm what functional level your domain is running in do the following:

1. Right-click on your server in the active directory users and computers snap-in
2. Select raise Domain Functinal Level.
3. Examine the Current Domain Functional Level Field.

*Note: Before changing the functional Level (if this is indeed the problem) you must assess the reprucutions of this action and ensure that the Domain Controller is not servicing legacy clients.

Please read the following for Microsoft Technical Reference for more information about domain functional levels:
